Hans Walter-PetersonMy program focuses on providing information to growers on viticultural practices such as vineyard site selection and establishment, selection of grape varieties, rootstocks, and training systems, canopy and crop load management, soils, vineyard nutrition and water management, and improving vineyard management efficiency. I am also working with Cornell's extension enologists to help grape growers and winemakers better understand each others' issues in order to improve working relations between the two groups.

Tailgate Meetings Around the Finger Lakes

The weather is warming up, and that means the start of another growing season in Finger Lakes vineyards. It also means the start of the Finger Lakes Grape Program's annual series of Tailgate Meetings, which are held every other week during the growing season. These meetings are a great opportunity to talk with FLGP staff and other growers about what's going on in the vineyards, and exchange ideas about how to make improvements on the farm.

Want to learn more about our Tailgate Meetings? Check out the video below, or better yet, come to a meeting this year. No cost, no registration necessary. Dates and locations are listed on our Calendar of Events.
